Augmented (hyper)Reality

February 2, 2010

This impressive short film is by Keiichi Matsuda, an architectural¬†student studying at the Bartlett School of Architecture, London, in Unit 15 – a class that explores spatial qualities and possibilities using film, animation and motion graphics.

A film produced for my final year Masters in Architecture, part of a larger project about the social and architectural consequences of new media and augmented reality.”

September 8, 2009

Designed by architect Alex de Rijke from dRMM for owner Ross Russell.
